at the "morning papers." "the washington post." the cia has started off 2013 by using drones to bomb taliban targets in pakistan on 7 of the last 10 days. analysts say the uptick in air attacks is a move to weaken the taliban's hold on the region ahead of coalition troop withdrawals in 2014. >>> and "the washington post," the pentagon is preparing for a worst-case scenario in which lawmakers failed to make its march 1st deadline on the budget deal. that would mean deep, across-the-board cuts including $500 million less for the defense department. leon panetta says it would be a huge setback for national security. >>> "the wall street journal," american express is set to cut 5,400 jobs. the company will slash 8.5% of its staff, mostly from its travel division which has lost business in the advent of internet travel sites. >>> this weekend's "parade" magazine, it's the savings issue. inside, a guide to saving $10,000 this year. >> did you hear that? you can save money. >> that's a good investment because that "parade" doesn't cost that much. so you can save. that's kind of a no-brainer. >> the

this is a guaranty for a taliban takeover, resurgence of al qaeda, the sacrifice of everything our troops have won for us over there and as i say, i think this is a question of getting some good negotiators. we could have resolved that program in iraq if we had the will and tenacity to do so. we can do it here in afghanistan as as well. i think it is less a question of what hamid karzai wants but more a question of what barack obama wants or doesn't want. jenna: that is a big question. we heard from general allen reports that he had suggested to the pentagon upwards of wanting 20,000 troops to remain in the country after the end of 2014. what do you think about the fact that this debate, this negotiation, this floating of the idea of the zero option, is happening very much in the public sphere? that we're talking about it now, that it is out in the open rather than behind closed doors, how does that impact things? >> i think this is what the president wants. i don't think he wants to be in afghanistan. forget after 2014. i think he would like to withdraw this year. and i think a lot of numbers abo

they have a government that's not taliban and al-qaeda free? how much does it mean to you and those who lost their lives? >> it means a lot to me. the afghan people made a lot of progress. if go back from 1979, really until the present, they've been at war. the country has been torn apart. in the last few years, they have made progress, more rights for women, more kids in schools, economic progress and a lot of different things. they don't want to lose that. to me, it's very important for our moral responsibility to the afghan people, but also for our geostrategic interest in the region. i don't necessarily think that means thousands of american troops there. i do think that it means a strategic partnership to secure in the minds of afghan people that they've got a friend. >> steve: we want to talk to you on the other side of a quick timeout about saddam hussein because there is some stuff that you can clarify for us. so the general is sticking around. more on his great new book "my share of the task" coming up. >> brian: let's check in with bill hemmer to find out what's coming up at the to
